Why is night-time skin care so important?
5 benefits of a proper nighttime skin routine
- To give your skin the moisture it needs to stay hydrated overnight.
- You’re not affected by UVA/UVB rays as you sleep, meaning you can focus on moisture rather than protection.
- To unclog pores, preventing blemishes and an uneven complexion.
- Products can sink in more easily overnight compared with the disturbances of the day.
- You don’t drink water at night, so topical moisture is beneficial.
What happens to your skin as you sleep?
Getting enough shut-eye is a crucial part of any beauty routine, because this is when the skin recovers and repairs itself. As you catch up on much needed rest, your cells regenerate, replacing dead or damaged skin cells with fresh ones and reversing damage caused by free radicals throughout the day.
Part of the repair process involves producing collagen, which is responsible for keeping the skin plumper and less likely to wrinkle. The benefit: it will leave you with a glowing, healthy-looking complexion.
Applying an intensively hydrating moisturiser like NIVEA Express Hydration Body Lotion every evening will help skin cells to restore and regenerate as they should.
